Even celebrities have come forward about

their struggle with trichotillomania.


Trichotillomania isn’t biased.

I am sure there are many, considering an estimated

that 1-2 out of every 50 people have trichotillomania

and I imagine that number is actually way under reported.


I admire the celebrities that despite the constant scrutiny of being in the public eye,

have come forward about their struggle with trich.

We are human. We are people. We just have a thing that some people have.


5 Celebrities that Have Trichotillomania


Olivia Munn

In an interview, Munn stated,

‘It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying.

Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes.’

This is the most humanizing statement I have read from a celebrity

facing trichotillomania because I can absolutely relate to this.

It shows how normal the tribulations of trichotillomania really are. I do this.

I always need to buy lashes.

I need to really fight myself not to apply them when

I am just running out to the drugstore.

Megan Fox

According to, well, the internet,

Meghan Fox was diagnosed with trichotillomania and has been admitted

to the hospital for medical treatment three times.

Note: I don’t think it’s fair to say that those three hospitalizations

were attributed to trich, as I did not find any confirmation.

Colin Farrell

On an interview with Jay Leno, Colin Farrell admits

“I was a hair puller, I used to pull my hair out,”.  

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron admitted to a diagnosis with Trichotillomania

on an Australian Radio interview in 2012,

which, by the way, I tried relentlessly to find, without avail.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry reportedly admitted on an interview

(again, I tried to find this interview but the internet becomes a vortex for ADD)

that she too suffers from trichotillomania and OCD.


In closing,

Having trichotillomania can feel very isolating,

and it tends to make an individual feel so very alone.


But it’s this kind of perspective that, celebs are people,

and people have trichotillomania.

We are not alone, we are a tribe from near

and far with a commonality.

You are not alone.
